The city of Beaumont is located south of the dense pine forests of East Texas on the coastal plane, that is roughly thirty miles inland from the Gulf of Mexico. Neches River borders the city on the east and Pine Island Bayou borders Beaumont City on the north border. Initially, the city of Beaumont was criss-crossed by some small streams but as the city developed the majority of them were filled or converted for drainage reasons. Trinity Island is located directly across from Riverfront Park, and the other three islands around the downtown part are named Harbor, Smith, and Clark.
The area was first settled by Nancy and Noah Tevis in 1824. They made a farm on the west bank of the Neches River. A small community started to grow around the farm and was eventually named Neches River or Tevis Bluff Settlement. Henry Millard, Joseph P. Pulsifer and Thomas B. Huling acquired the small community along with the nearby community of Santa Anna during 1835 with the intention of planning a town. It was named after the late wife of henry Millard, Mary Dewburleigh Barlace Warren Beaumont, who passed away during the year 1834.
